Who are you really... beneath the surface?

Let's be honest. Do you have confidence in your own abilities? How do you define ourselves? With money, a nice home, beautiful things, or your looks? Do you struggle with insecurity and self-confidence?

According to the author, women today judge themselves by what they see on TV. They never feel they are "enough" because they fail to recognize their identity is found in a deeper source. Karol Ladd will show you, in the pages of this book that when you understand your purpose and "walk with God-confidence" you will become what God intended you to be.

In the pages of A WOMAN'S SECRET FOR CONFIDENT LIVING, Ms. Ladd shows us how to:

1. Transform your thinking through powerful prayers
2. Cultivate potential by exploring the dreams God gives you
3. Step forward with a strong sense of identity in Christ
4. Deepen relationships and communications with others and with God
5. Shine with joy and assurance of what you bring to the world

Written as a book to study with a group of women, each chapter is short, and easy to read, where Ms. Ladd or someone else shares a story or two, then the lesson is taught with Scripture, and then a "application" so you can apply what you read and learned to your own life. Plus discussion questions are included (at the end of the book.)

English is my "thing" so I was really interested in the word studies there she dug into the root of different words to really show us what is meant by certain things. I found that quite fascinating. Ms.

Becoming Who God Made You to Be

Karol Ladd


Harvest House Publishers

Non Fiction/Christian Living/Women's Interest

Who does God want you to be? Have you ever thought of that? Do you think you have arrived at the point and are living out your life as God intended? Karol Ladd's new book, will guide you in the right direction for finding the answers to these questions.

A short, easy to read book that you can study alone, or with a group of girlfriends, you will find out that God has much more for you, than most of us are attaining to.

Find your value and you identity in Christ. Be confident, but don't expect the confidence of the world to be the confidence you need in life. Grow your relationships, God's way! Bring joy and assurance to the people around you. All of these subjects and topics are covered in this book, she ends each section with confidence building steps for you to follow. Definitely you will not want to miss out on this book.

My favorite part of the book is the "Glorious Makeover" (chapter seven) we often focus on the outside too much and forget our true beauty comes from within and that if we seek His kingdom first that our true beauty will shine!

This book will bless you with the little side stories (I loved the one about the southern woman telling her that her dress 'flatters you to bits'), each story brings significance to the section it is related in. A great book that I will happily pass along to friends to share. 207 pages 4 stars.

Format: Paperback
I've battled with self-confidence my whole life. I've gone to desperate measures before in attempts to seem and feel like a confident person. Sure, I've had fleeting moments of what I thought was confidence. But not a confidence given by God - a deep, fulfilling, and joyful confidence.

Does this sound like you, too?
If so, this book will be a great encouragement and help change your perspective.

After reading, "A Woman's Secret for Confident Living" I can honestly say that I am further along in my walk with Christ. Upon realization that once we take our eyes off of ourselves and onto the One who "fearfully and wonderfully" created us, our problems become smaller and smaller, and in return, our confidence in Him grows. The personal and real-life examples, Karol Ladd gives are helpful to see how we can practically and effectively start changing our mindset.

I encourage anyone with similar struggles as I to dive into this book full-force and meditate on the Biblically-inspired words Karol has written. Especially take the time to do the "additional reading" at the end of each chapter. You will be blessed.

While there's no radical formula crafted by Karol in this book for overcoming confidence issues, I do believe that God uses her to put His words and truths in a new light that we may have not considered before.

As you read A Woman's Secret for Confident Living, you will laugh, cry, be encouraged and challenged to live your life out loud, the way God intended, and purposed you to do.

Through reading each chapter you will also discover reflection questions, as well as questions that can be used for more detailed individual or group study. This is the perfect book for a Women's Bible Study or small group, and also has a DVD Curriculum to correspond with.

As you follow Ladd's book, you will be taken through a scripturally sound study of the book of Colossians and learn how to live out loud the truth's found in this little nugget from Paul the Apostle. Karol Ladd using extensive word studies, yet the book is very easy to read, well organized and each chapter concludes with additional scripture reading, practical ideas for your life and a "deliberate plan" for the reader to implement for their own life. Because I read this book for review, I did so quickly but plan on going through it more deliberately and slowly again soon, as part of my own spiritual growth time. A definite must read for all women who desire to live a life full of confidence because of God, not man!

I highly recommend this book and give it a huge thumbs up.
